StephenMulletteMatthewsFolbigg is the only law firm in Western Sydney which offers a specialist personal and corporate insolvency and restructuring service.
Our Insolvency and Restructuring Group is highly regarded for its creative approach to restructuring and dealing with distressed debt. We have a strong track record of combining technical expertise with commercial acumen, innovative and cost-effective solutions.
Our services cover clients seeking to proactively manage credit risk, such as the ATO, preserve value in distressed companies and manage exposure to insolvency administration. We pride ourselves on our approachability and "no nonsense" style of dealing with issues confronted by our clients.
The team has advised on some of Australia’s largest administration and restructuring matters, working closely with administrators and a broad range of accounting firms primarily based in Greater Western Sydney.
Our client base includes government instrumentalities, external administrators, large and small scale businesses as well as individuals. We work closely with other professionals including accountants and financial planners to ensure the service we provide is best suited to our client's individual needs.

    Corporate Insolvency
    Our Insolvency & Restructuring Group has proven expertise in representing the interests of all stakeholders in corporate insolvency matters. Our current clients include liquidators, administrators, deed administrators and receivers, as well as secured and unsecured creditors and directors.
    The creation of a separate Insolvency & Restructuring Group within the firm has enabled us to offer a timely, practical and focused service tailored to each client's unique situation.
    We strive to ensure that our advice and representation improves our client's position.
    Consistent with the firm's core values, we seek innovative solutions to our client's insolvency issues, which often means rejecting traditional approaches which may not be best suited to a client's situation. We regularly work in conjunction with lawyers in the firm's commercial, property and employment law groups to provide a complete, tailored result.
    Personal Insolvency
    The law relating to bankruptcy has undergone an unprecedented process of change which has profoundly altered the way the law relating to bankruptcy, estate planning strategies and family law interact.
    MatthewsFolbigg stands alone in Western Sydney in having specialist groups in each of Family Law and Insolvency. Lawyers within each of these groups regularly work together on insolvency issues to ensure all aspects of the changing legal environment are identified and clients are best placed to deal with them confidently.
